The Mouse’s phone (and related camera) is kaput. Can’t update nor restore (which is what started this downhill slide in the first place). Can’t restart. Big sigh!

Please Stand By

Went to the phone carrier, said it was a product issue. Went to the Apple store, walk-in wait over four hours. Next appointment is later next week. Why would you create a product that people “can’t live without” and not have the technical support to service it in a timely manner? Where’s Steve Jobs when you need him?

Going to stand in line this morning hoping to be one of the first walk-ins for service.

The Mouse wonders if turning into a Luddite is not such a bad thing.

Anyway, keep you posted.

More Char

This time, eggplant.


Partially peeled, medium sliced. medium low heat, non-stick pan, avocado oil, finish with sprinkle of salt (like French fries). 🙂

Pan Charred Eggplant

Original plan was to put a miso glaze. Ran out of time. The Mouse would fail in an Iron Chef competition. Sigh.

The Cat liked anyway.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse’s latest “obsession”, mushroom gravy.

This week’s one pot.

Dried Mushroom


Canned Mushroom

Normally, The Mouse wouldn’t use canned mushroom but since the dish was a long braise/simmer, no difference.

Shemeiji Mushrooms

Kinda reminds The Mouse of the Fantasia movie sequence. Hee hee.

“Button Mushrooms”




Pork Belly


Mushroom Gravy

Everything in the pot and hope for the best.
